Falk backers remain hopeful, say will support whoever Dem nominee is in fight against Walker

Although Kathleen Falk has trailed in the polls as of late, supporters at her Election Night party remain hopeful she can pull of a victory in the recall primary.

As the polls closed Tuesday, around 40 Falk supporters gradually rolled in to the former Dane County Executive’s Election Night party at the Edgewater Hotel on Lake Mendota. Most supporters say they do not take much stocks in recent polls and are optimistic Falk can with the primary, but will support whichever Dem gets put up against Gov. Scott Walker.

The atmosphere is relatively laid back as supporters enjoy a buffet while listening to music and watching poll results as they come in on a projector screen.

Scot Ross, Falk’s spokesman, said Dem was the underdog coming into today, but that he feels great about the campaign’s efforts to get out the vote throughout the day and that the race is now in the hands of the voters. He added that Dems will remain united in the fight to oust Walker from office no matter who wins the primary.

Sen. Mark Miller is also in attendance at Falk’s party, but said he is there to support whoever the Dem nominee ends up being.
